Group Reflective Practice for MHFAs - 90 minutes
Francesca Rogers, Vaso Soteri, Hilary Lees
Reflective Practice for your Mental Health First Aiders can offer vital support in helping MHFAs to think about what they need if they are finding the MHFA role difficult or are feeling stuck.
Reflective Practice helps MHFAs be clear on boundaries and responsibility, providing them with space to reflect on their feelings about their work and to think about their role in a safe, contained and confidential group.
Reflective Practice supports your company wellbeing lead who is the first port of call for any MHFA queries. It helps highlight organisational needs and makes suggestions on how to make your MHFA structure safer. It also helps MHFAs explore how to work through things, be more engaged and work with their peers and the experienced facilitator to promote themselves within their organisation. We recommend monthly, bi-monthly or quarterly sessions.
